Dag & Red   6 - 0   Morecambe

Dagenham and Redbridge V Morecambe

Dag & Red 6 - 0 Morecambe

Josh Scott hit four goals as Dagenham & Redbridge thrashed Morecambe to put themselves on the brink of the League Two play-off final at Wembley.

Paul Benson scored a tap-in before Scott latched on to Barry Roche's goal-kick and fired low into the corner.

Scott's next goal came at the second attempt after Roche had pushed Mark Arber's penalty into his path, and his third was a free header from a corner.

Benson struck home before Scott clipped in to round off an extraordinary game.

It was a sensational performance from the Daggers, who became the first team to score more than five goals in the first leg of a league play-off semi-final.

Morecambe and their manager Sammy McIlroy will be disappointed that a memorable campaign, in which they finished one place below automatic promotion, could be undermined in such devastating fashion.

It will take nothing short of a miracle in the second leg at Christie Park on Thursday for Morecambe to turn this tie around.

606: DEBATE
Callum Williams - BBC Sport

Dagenham took the lead inside four minutes as Roche could only palm Josh Scott's header into the path of Benson, who tapped home his 19th goal of the season.

Morecambe came close to drawing level three minutes later when Paul Mullin found space in the box but struck his shot straight at Tony Roberts. Mullin's header from the resulting corner narrowly cleared the bar.

Dagenham's second was gifted to them by their opponents as a scuffed goal-kick from Roche found Scott 40 yards out on the left.

The striker bore down on goal and fired a fine left-foot shot into the far corner.

Morecambe's afternoon went from bad to worse when, one minute after half-time, captain Jim Bentley upended Green in the box.

Daggers skipper Arber's penalty was saved by Roche but the ball deflected into the path of Scott, and although his initial effort struck the post, he was on hand to turn in the rebound.

Scott grabbed his hat-trick after 54 minutes with a free header from Green's corner and more sorry defending was responsible for the fifth goal as Andy Parrish headed straight into the path of Benson, who blasted in his 20th of the season.

Five became six in the 68th minute when Scott snatched the ball on the touchline, cut inside and placed a clever finish past Roche to cap a famous afternoon for the Daggers and an utterly forgettable one for Morecambe.

Rotherham beat Aldershot 1-0 in the other semi-final first leg, with the final scheduled for Sunday 30 May.


Dagenham & Redbridge manager John Still told BBC Essex:
"It was an amazing performance by a fantastic group of players who have come so far in not a very long time.

"We've got to be professional and do our job in the second leg.

"They found it difficult to cope intensity and tempo of our game. It's a feature of how we play, both home and away, and today it all went right for us.
